Chino Trousers

Chino cloth is a kind of twill fabric, made primarily from cotton. Chino trousers gained popularity in the U.S. in the 1900s after military men returning from the Spanish-American War in the Philippines brought back their cotton military trousers. The fabric for their trousers was originally made in China. "Chino" is the Spanish term for Chinese which is how the fabric and these trousers picked up the name.

The first chinos sold in the U.S. were U.S. Army military-issue pants, and to save fabric during WWII -era constraints, they had no pleats and were tapered at the bottom of the leg. Chinos are now typically dressier in style, similar to that of suit trousers and as such can be considered a smart but casual form of dress.
